STOCKTON — A $400,000 federal grant should help Stockton Metropolitan Airport secure regular air service from another passenger airline, officials said Tuesday. The airport offers five daily flights a week from Stockton to Las Vegas. The U.S. Department of Transportation air-service development grant, together with $400,000 in community matching funds, will be used to support additional air service in Stockton. “This grant and the local commitment is enough to secure jet service on a major airline to a connection hub and that’s pretty much in the bag,” said Barry Rondinella, outgoing airport director.
